Excess fat is one of the more problematic conditions. It can persist even after you have lost an incredible amount of weight while becoming more physically fit. The biggest problem is that removing excess fat has traditionally been met with countless obstacles. While liposuction is a viable way to remove fat, it tends to bring complications, like loose skin and painful recoveries.
Non-invasive and minimally-invasive procedures have traditionally had limited results. However, laser lipo represents a new method that can allow patients to remove excess fat without undergoing invasive surgeries.
What is Laser Liposuction?
Laser lipo utilizes some of the techniques associated with tumescent liposuction while utilizing a laser to remove fat. This in turn means that the patient typically undergoes less healing and sees better results. Fat removal with laser liposuction typically works by introducing the laser to the fat in order to loosen it and make it easier for removal. The excess fat is then removed via suction.
It is the tightening of the skin that may take the longest to heal, as the removal of fat often requires skin to become tighter. This means that the result of laser lipo will both look excellent, and only get better as time passes.
Understanding the Benefits of Laser Lipo
The unique nature of the laser liposuction procedure produces exclusive benefits for patients who undergo it. These benefits include:
- A reduction in excess fat at the site of treatment – Laser liposuction effectively breaks down fatty tissue, and removes it. This allows for patients to see immediate results that only become better as time progresses.
- Less discomfort – Compared to traditional liposuction procedures, laser liposuction produces minimal discomfort. Patients are given a mild anesthesia to help further ease any discomfort that may occur.
- Faster recovery – Laser lipo’s use of a laser-tipped probe allows it to cleanly remove fatty tissue in a way that appears natural. The laser also tends to help foster a faster recovery, which in turn leads to better overall results.
- Heightened safety – The last major benefit of laser liposuction is the increased safety present for patients. The minimally-invasive nature of laser lipo combines with the laser technology to reduce the risk of infection while effectively removing fat cells.
